This Chainsaw is compact and lightweight at 2.6kg and it's so simple to use - just pop in the battery and go! The MSA 140 C-B is also packed with innovative STIHL technology, such as Quick Chain Tensioning so you can tighten the chain without tools and the Ematic chain lubrication system which results in up to 50% less chain oil consumption. 

The MSA 140 C-B features the exclusive ¼ inch STIHL PICCO saw chain which assures clean, smooth cuts.

The MSA 140 C-B is part of our AK Cordless System range of tools with interchangeable batteries - the battery can be used in other tools in this range including a Hedge Trimmer, Blower, Line Trimmers and Lawn Mowers.
